The last time Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa nearly divorced, Kobe bought her what was dubbed the $4 million “apology ring.” This time, with divorce seemingly imminent, Kobe is buying himself toys, including a Ferrari 458 Italia.
According to TMZ.com’s sources, Kobe bought the new Ferrari over the weekend, and paid for the $329,000 car by simply writing a check.
Of course, keep in mind that Kobe makes a lot of money. According to Forbes.com, Kobe’s earnings last year (salary plus endorsements) exceeded $53 million. So this car represents just 0.6% of his annual income, or about 22 minutes of actual playing time.
The 2012 Ferrari 458 Italia has an MSRP of $230,000 so Kobe's must come with a lot of bells and whistles
The 458 Italia can reach 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, but we suspect nobody buys a Ferrari to go just 60 mph
